72. Thomas FLYNN45,102 was born in 1818 in North Carolina.45,46

There are two Thomas Flynns of the same age (31, both born in NC) in this Census. One listed here with a family, the other listed with Thomas' brother William. Either there are two and for some reason, Thomas was counted twice.

Hall shows Thomas born in 1830 - if he was then this isn't the right Thomas married to Amelia McDonald.

1840 Census. Greene Co IN
Thomas Flinn, 1m age 20-30. 1f age 20-30.

The Flinn book states that Thomas married "Permelia"; the online marriage record says "Permetia". There's no other marriage record for Thomas. A deed of 18 Nov 1852, gives her name as Sidney Amelia Flinn. The 1850 Census has Sydney A. Either she married as Amelia and the name was misread or Thomas married twice. I believe it's the same lady.
